Do you ever send markers or ink?

I'm considering sending specific markers with a postal. It's a book postal, so it will already be a little on the heavy side, but I don't think the markers would add significant weight.

Does anyone ever do this? Any problems, did they go missing or get damaged?

I was in a swap once where they were worried ppl may not have silver and gold so they sent ink pads with it.

I've personally received postals with ink pads in it.. I didn't have a problem with it.. but I'd check with the members and host of the tracker, just to make sure they didn't mind..

I have on occasion sent markers or ink for postals that I wanted to ensure the right colors were used (with no issues). The ink/markers came back just as I sent them every time. If it doesn’t change the postage rate I don’t think it’s necessary to ask the group.

I'm intrigued that there are specific colors to use on your stamp. Luckily I'm in the ring and will get to see what you came up with. 🖍
